Mila Kunis thrown off by weird pregnancy eating habits

Mila Kunis is baffled by her "strange" eating habits during her second pregnancy, because it's made her very selective about her favorite food.

The Ted star is expecting her second child with husband Ashton Kutcher, and while she is not having any odd cravings like her first pregnancy, she is having to avoid one specific kind of meal.


"With the first one I didn't have any aversions," she told U.S. morning show Live! with Kelly on Wednesday (20Jul16). "I craved sauerkraut. The first half of my pregnancy, I couldn't get enough vinegar. Greek chopped salad: vinegar.


"The second one, I can't eat meat. It'll look delicious to me, and then I'll take a bite of it, and then I'm like, 'Uh-uh. Can't do it.'"


"This is going to offend a lot of people who are vegetarian: I love steak. I (can) eat ground beef - like a burger, I can eat - but whole pieces of meat, uh-uh," she added. "It doesn't make any sense. But I can also eat eggs all day long. If someone's like, 'Have an egg for dinner,' I'm like, 'Great.' It's a very strange pregnancy when it comes to food."


The actress also reveals the way she is preparing for her second child is much different from her first, explaining she is not as consumed by the stages of pregnancy because she is too busy with the couple's 21-month-old daughter, Wyatt.


Mila is also working to prepare her daughter for the impending arrival, but the little girl doesn't really understand the concept.


"We were trying to teach Wyatt, like, 'You're going to be a big sister,' but she's too little to comprehend that only mummy's got the baby," she said. "So, this is where the problem happens. You go, 'Where's the baby?' She'll point to her belly, to your belly... Everybody's got a baby in their belly."


The 32-year-old is handling her pregnancy well so far, but she is not sure how she will juggle life as a mother of two young children.


"So far I feel great because the baby's still protected in my belly, the baby's not out and about doing things, so right now I'm like, it's great, it's really easy...," she told U.S. breakfast show Today. "Talk to you in a couple months when we're sleep deprived again!"


However, she knows she doesn't have to worry too much because Ashton has always been great support as a dad.


"He's an incredible father, there's not even a question," she declared. "You know, some men - and it's OK - it takes them a little time to adapt to having a baby and feel comfortable. Wyatt came out and two seconds later he had adapted to swaddling and changing diapers. He's incredible."
